In the antique business since 1967, Duane Hill uses his experienced, discerning eye and his contacts from the world over to fill his 6,000-square-foot barn with well-cared-for antique home goods, art, and collectibles. He sorts through weekly shipments to augment the large furniture section, stocked with diverse styles such as mission oak, art deco, Victorian, and French furnishings. A visit to the store is rather like a treasure hunt—visitors browse thousands of items, including mirrors, china dishes, chairs, and rugs, and pause to gape at the near-mint condition of a centuries-old item or to scoop up a picture frame or vase that suits their style. The shop also carries rare Alaskan artifacts, including mammoth tusks, carvings, and art made from soapstone, baleen, ivory, and snowballs. A member of the International Society of Appraisers, Duane also does appraisals of customers' items, and his staff can expertly restore furniture to give old items new life.
